New Cover art for Harry Potter!
No unfortunately this isn't news about any new Harry Potter books. It is however news about the 15th anniversary of 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone'. I feel so old hearing it's the 15th anniversary. I remember when these books first came out. I also remember every year they came out I would buy one the day it came out. There hasn't been a series yet that I've had to run out that day and buy the book. I've laughed and cried with these characters. They've become family to many of us. Even the movies have become family. So finding out that they are redoing the cover art for these books is pretty cool. It's only going to be for the paperback versions of the books. Here are two of the covers they have released so far :

Pottermore that is a retelling of the books in an interactive way. You also get to explore things never talked about in the books. J.K. Rowling explains where ideas on certain things came from. If you click the word Pottermore it'll take you there.
